Longines – The HYDROCONQUEST GMT now also with a case diameter of 43 mm

This year the HYDROCONQUEST GMT will be supplemented by new models with a 43mm case diameter. Water resistant to 30 bar (300 meters), robust, with unidirectional rotating ceramic bezel, screw-down crown and screw-down caseback: this collection is clearly inspired by the world of water sports. Like the 41 mm models launched in 2023, the new variants of the HYDROCONQUEST GMT feature an exclusive Longines multi-time zone movement and are available in different colors and materials.

As powerful as they are stylish, the HydroConquest line of watches are designed for anyone who enjoys pushing boundaries and exploring new horizons. The collection, launched in 2007, was expanded last year to include a series of 41 mm diameter GMT models with a completely new design.

Now the HydroConquest family is being expanded to include new models with a diameter of 43 mm. The alternately polished and satin-finished stainless steel case with screwed back of this new generation houses the exclusive Longines GMT caliber L844.5, which is equipped with a silicon balance spring and innovative components made of non-magnetic materials. The movement offers magnetic field resistance that exceeds the ISO 764 standard ten times. It is also highly precise and offers a power reserve of up to 72 hours.

The new HydroConquest GMT models are available with either a black, blue or green dial and feature a sapphire crystal with several layers of anti-reflective coating. The indices are coated with Super-LumiNova® for optimal readability under all circumstances. Round indices at 6 and 9 o’clock and a triangular index at 12 o’clock are complemented by a date window at 3 o’clock. The arrow-shaped GMT hand picks up the color of the dial markings. On the bezel, the 24-hour scale is displayed in two colors to illustrate the difference between day and night. The HydroConquest GMT watches are water resistant to 30 bar (300 meters) and have a screw-down crown. The unidirectional, grooved ceramic bezel with luminous markings is also particularly advantageous for water sports enthusiasts.

The new models are combined with stainless steel straps with H-shaped links or with rubber straps in blue or black. For additional wearing comfort, all bracelets have a double safety folding clasp with fine adjustment.
